Joking around, we wondered what fusions we might be lucky to find in LA. One of us asked, "why not Indian and Mexican?" and when we got home we looked for a place and this came up. The food was terrific, the Fried Gobi Cauliflower...More

Had cauliflower, garlic naan, vegetarian papoosas, masala fries. Wine was okay, service very good. Communal dining with fire pits peppered in was cool. Airy enough to not interact with other groups, but possible if you wanted to. People at our table liked their burritos.

Used LA Trip Advisor app and found this place. Sounded great and unique. We walked from museums. It was shut down. When we looked it up on the web, we learned it had moved to a new location and that location was also closed. Disappointed...More

This is a gem of a restaurant when you least expect it. We were here for lunch, but the vibe is built primarily for dinners, when it probably is more lively and beautiful. The outdoor seating in the courtyard is lovely because it is authentic....More
